But first, what is a Rebel Mom?
To us, a Rebel Mom is confident of all her choices, conventional or not. Motherhood is hard, full of big and small decisions and unasked for opinions. To do what you think is right, to trust your instincts takes a lot of courage. That’s a true rebel!
From homeschooling or traditional schooling, going against gender-specific pinks and blues, choosing to be a working mom or not, the list goes on. You may not do things the way other moms do and that’s ok because in watching you become independent and confident, the little girl you’re doing this for is growing up the same way. And after all, that’s how Rebel Girls are born. That’s what we want to celebrate.
And because being a mother is an endless balancing act, the best way to rebel is not to do it all yourself! Ask for help, be vocal about the not so sunshine-y days, break gender barriers within your home, don’t be afraid to want more than motherhood. So you raise your daughter to know that she can be whoever and whatever she wants and her opinions matter.
So, to all the Rebel Moms out there, thank you for raising a generation of Rebel Girls. A very happy Women’s Day to all of you!

For Her For Him For All
Our aim is to empower all - moms and dads, little girls and little boys, to be inspired to create a world that is truly equal for all. We believe that gender should not define the toys children get, but to ensure that children play and learn the right way - by making fun, educational creations for them.
